Health Excellence Awards

The Auckland District Health Board 2016 Health Excellence Awards are open to everyone who provides services for or on behalf of Auckland DHB.

The Awards have been highlighting examples of excellence that make a difference to the health and experience of our patients and community since 2011. They are our way of recognising and celebrating the dedication of our people and inspiring others by sharing excellence around the organisation and with the wider health community.
